Questions To Ask The Seller Of A Private Sale When Buying A Used Car


in this video I’m going to give you four questions to ask the seller of a private sale before inspecting a used car hi i’m anthony from approval buddy have you had an issue occur after buying a used car from a private seller unfortunately this happens far too often and you can end up paying out more money than originally planned now number one does the vehicle that you’re looking at to buy have a current roadworthy certificate attached if not does the price include the car being roadworthy to transfer a vehicle over to you as the new owner in queensland you need a roadworthy certificate if the car has not been inspected you could be forking out more money afterwards to make sure it is roadworthy number two is the person you’re talking to the registered owner of the car and if so have they got registration papers to prove so? buying a car without the authority from the last owner could get you into trouble, or even fined if the seller cannot provide the proof that they are the registered owner or hesitate to do so it might be a good idea to move on number three is there any money owing on this car now what do I mean by this has the previous owner taking out a secured car loan to pay for this car and hasn’t paid the balance out just yet now the reason why this is so important is by right the bank still owns the vehicle until the loan is paid out so you don’t want to be paying the seller of the car when the bank has the right of ownership number 4 has this vehicle been any major accidents or hail damage before and if so has the insurance company recorded this now here at approval buddy this is the number one issue we pick up when we do our free vehicle inspection and history check for our customers so make sure you ask this question and always ask the VIN number of the vehicle so you can do a history check which you can do at ppsr.gov.au it cost you three dollars 40 but can save you thousands and it states the recorded accidents and any money outstanding at approval buddy we really care what car you buy so if you would like a friendly team of our car buying experts to walk you through the entire process we’re here to help head to approvalbuddy.com.au and click on the apply button thank you so much for watching today’s video if you found this valuable please give us a like and if you have any questions or comments or stories on today’s topic then please leave them in the comments section below
